I have always been sceptical about haunted mansions as I don't usually find them very scary... My partner was curious so we went in and enquired. Whilst there, there were groups of people absolutely screaming. After their turn, we had a chat with a group...More

My daughter (aged 16) wanted to try it out (as she had done some other haunted house earlier). But she 'chickened out within 5 min. No shame though, as she was preceeded by thousands of others. The staff is really friendly and helpful.

Completely whacko compared to a lot of tourist activities in Queenstown. Definitely will put you out of your comfort zone and enjoyed the experience. Fun and fantastic staff. Only downside is $35 each for 10-15 minutes.More
